ACOSS - Art Center of Social Studies


ACOSS residency program is a project workshop for the promotion of multy - disciplinary art and cultural international exchange in and out of Armenia. We call artists from all artistic disciplines to live, work, and collaborate during their preferred time of staying. Through the Artist-in-Residence

ACOSS supports international art activities bringing multicultural dimension to the region. The guest artists have opportunity to work in a peace space, separated from the everyday haste, set new contacts in the art field as well as to the local community. If artist's project is connected with Yerevan city, we can organize housing in the city. Interested artists have to discuss this matter with ACOSS artistic director beforehand.

The program consists of a residency up to one year and includes private and sharing studios, housing, and three meals per day by agreement. Private studios are available for artists 24 hours a day. We are sure that the friendships established among artists in residence often lead to collaborations and connections after residency period.

Financial aid is available.


Yerevan: Armenia

ACOSS is located in one of the districts of Yerevan called Djrvezh and has occupied 10,000 m/sq territory. Yerevan is the capital of Armenia. The region is not far from the city center (it takes 20 minutes by car). The territory is in a suitable place away from the city life and near to the countryside. The territory is enclosed with a large gate and includes two buildings; factory and comfortable living quarters. It gives a possibility to live and work in the same area. ACOSS takes care of the studio rent in Djrvej and utility expenses (gas, electricity, hot water, TV-set and internet).
